  1. What, I’m not good enough for you all by my lonesome?!? LOL
  2. Hooten was introducing the orchestra to those of us who were in attendance. The couples on either side of Williams were the largest donors to the project, while the three of us in the back, and a fourth gent not pictured, were the Kickstarter donors who contributed at a level that allowed us to attend the sessions. The dark-haired gent to my left, with his head down, is composer Daniel James Chan, who recently won an ASCAP award.
  3. That's me!! (not that you would know...)

    The End of Hook

  5. Well, there was a harpist (Joann Turovsky) for the Trumpet Concerto...
  6. Yes, sadly. That might have been one of the reasons it was chosen to fill out the EP a bit more. I'm not complaining, though, as I absolutely love the piece and Hooten's performance/recording!
  7. Hooten mentions in his IndyCast and Legacy of John Williams interviews (both excellent!!) that he and Williams discussed taking the piece at a more leisurely pace, compared to the OST.
  8. Not sure if "cute" is the word, but regardless, it was evident at the sessions that Williams hadn't revisited BotFoJ in some time. After a preliminary run-through of the entire piece sans Hooten (which was recorded), he came into the control room to discuss aspects of the performance and piece with Shawn Murphy. BTW, @lairdo, I really enjoyed the interview and loved hearing Hooten discuss the genesis of the project. Jerry Cole and David Paul (another donor) and their wives were in attendance. I didn't get to speak with them, but I overheard David Paul, I believe, speaking with Williams about having worked with him back in his television days. Stanley Wilson's name was mentioned at one point.
  9. Would be very happy with a revisit/remaster of Monsignor. As I recall from a forum post or private correspondence with Nick Redman, he had located the full sessions or at least something more than just the album release. But there may have been some licensing concerns.
  10. Check your PMs, @A Ghost From Highwood!
  11. Plus this is just a pre-order deal from the Super Deluxe Edition site. It will likely be available through other avenues some time in April, which appears to be the release month. Shipping rates from other places may be less.
  12. The only works that were recorded in September were the Trumpet Concerto and Theme from Born on the Fourth of July. So unlikely.
